Google Pushes Source Code for Android 2.0 - Developers Push it to G1 Within Hours

g1_android20Android 2.0 SDK has been available for a few weeks now, but the source code has been held hostage.  The word around the campfire is that Google hasn’t been too forthcoming with it.  Most handset manufacturers have been stuck messing with Android 1.6 instead.  No more of that!

Last night saw Google pushing out the source code for Android 2.0 to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). In just under a few hours, the Android developer community had it working on a G1.  Yep.  You read it right.  The “likeness” picture we created for this post stems from a screenshot taken by Android hacker-extraordinaire Cyanogen.

According to him, 2.0 is running “really well, fast and smooth” with audio/video playback being the only stuff that doesn’t work properly.  It shouldn’t be too long before that’s fixed.  Give these guys a case of Red Bull and a weekend and watch what happens!  Our money is on them getting it done way before Google or T-Mobile push it out to G1′s!
